The Freixenet Group’s commitment to sustainable viticulture
- Sustainable viticulture is an agricultural approach that seeks to produce high-quality grapes while minimizing negative impact on the environment
At Grupo Freixenet we are committed to sustainable viticulture, consisting of an agricultural approach where we seek to produce high quality grapes while minimizing the negative impact on the environment and promoting the health of the soil, the vine and the people involved in production. Sustainable viticulture focuses on using agricultural practices that are respectful of the environment and seeks to reduce the amount of waste, energy and water needed to produce grapes.
How Grupo Freixenet practices sustainable viticulture:
Some of the common practices of sustainable viticulture include the use of organic or biological farming techniques, integrated pest and disease control, soil and water conservation, carbon footprint reduction and biodiversity promotion. In short, sustainable agriculture is about using the necessary elements at the right time, neither more nor less.
Freixenet Group practices sustainable viticulture based on three pillars: productive, social and economic. Some examples of actions we take in this regard are the vegetation covers in the vineyard, pest control through the technique of “sexual confusion”, the application of treatments only when necessary, the maintenance of soils and the construction of stable and lasting relationships with our grape suppliers.
In short, sustainable viticulture seeks to produce high quality grapes and at the same time protect and improve the environment and the health of the people involved in production.
